Who can clean faster – a robot or a TV presenter? That’s the challenge taking place on November 8 at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo in Dubai Mall.

The robot that cleans the aquarium (who knew?) will face off against the host of Discovery Channel’s ‘Tanked’ from 5pm at The Dubai Mall. Each contestant will be given half of the aquarium’s casement. The task is simple: To wipe it clean. The 10 million litre Dubai Aquarium tank, is one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world. The event is open to the public and free to attend.

Tanked follows the aquarium-building exploits of Wayde King and Brett Raymer.
